Creative Chemistry 102

I have the other three techniques from Creative Chemistry 102.  This was such a great purchase.  I have loved trying out the techniques and of course shopping for the new supplies to try!

This tag is showing a stamp resist with distress paints.  I was really surprised at how nicely the distress paints stamp.  Usually when I've stamped with paint it ends up really thick.  I was able to use a detailed stamp here.

I next tried out the eroded metallic.  I love the look of this technique.  It was tricky to get the right look.  I want to get some more paint colors so I can try this with other metals and backgrounds.

This technique was called altered surfaces.  Tim Holtz demonstrated it with plastic pieces from his line.  I wasn't able to get any of those so I die cut two elements from chipboard and a metal sheet.  I didn't have the right colors of paint to achieve the patina look so I went for a rusted metal finish.
